Cleanup starts today

Webster City will once again be holding their city-wide clean-up and drop-off event this Friday and Saturday. Residents are being encouraged by city officials to take advantage of the free event to dispose of items that cannot be placed in the regular garbage or recycling.

Webster City residents can drop off items on Friday, June 9 from noon to 4 p.m. and Saturday, June 10 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Webster City Middle School parking lot. Last year the city collected five container loads of trash and three container loads of scrap metal. The event was shut down an hour early due to the high volume of items the city received. This year, Mayor John Hawkins said he hopes to be more prepared and stay open through the whole event.

Examples of items accepted include: Household furniture, grills/lawn furniture, scrap metal items, bicycles, appliances, mattresses/box springs, carpet pieces, and miscellaneous household items.

Items that will not be accepted include: Propane tanks/cylinders, tires, large amounts of building materials, paint, hazardous materials, computers/laptops, televisions, batteries, concrete, bricks, or rocks, roofing materials and yard waste.

Those who are in need of assistance should call city hall at (515) 832-9151 to discuss their individual pick-up needs.
